Western Swamphen, Lincolnshire

On Tuesday 30th August 2016 in the morning, news came out about a Western Swamphen being seen in Lincolnshire. It was the same bird as the one seen at Minsmere whilst we were in the USA.
We were all in the car within 20 minutes of the news breaking, on our way. When we arrived at the site, the bird hadn’t been seen for a while.  We waited nervously but we were then rewarded with great views. Although I was only able to get good views I could only get a record shot of the bird because of the distance.

It was amazing to catch up with this bird, after all this time. This was also Mum’s 500th British bird, which was a big achievement and my 456th bird. This is a record shot taken at a long distance.
